    NEW YORK (AP) – Snoop Dogg, Gloria Estefan, Sade, Jeff Lynne, Glen Ballard, Teddy Riley and Liz Rose have been chosen to join the Songwriters Hall of Fame, a class that includes the writers of such varied hits as Man In the Mirror, Drop It Like It’s Hot and Rhythm Is Gonna Get You.

    The seven songwriters from the class of 2023 will be inducted at a gala June 15 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.

    Snoop Dogg, whose hits include Drop It Like It’s Hot and Gin & Juice, will be joining such rappers as Missy Elliott and Jay-Z in the hall. Estefan is credited for popularising Latin rhythms with such crossover smashes as Rhythm Is Gonna Get You and Let’s Get Loud.

    The inductees include soul-jazz vocalist Sade, whose 1980s soft rock hits include Smooth Operator and The Sweetest Taboo and Lynne, of ELO, who penned Mr Blue Sky and Evil Woman.

    Estefan took to Instagram to thank “all the incredible fans that, by listening to my music, have made it possible for me to receive this incredible honour!”

    Ballard helped write Alanis Morissette’s monster 1995 album Jagged Little Pill and was involved in the recording and writing of several Michael Jackson albums.

    Riley, the singer, songwriter and producer, is credited with creating New Jack Swing and its top anthems like Bobby Brown’s My Prerogative and Keith Sweat’s I Want Her.

    Rose co-wrote many songs with Taylor Swift, including You Belong with Me, Teardrops on My Guitar and White Horse.
